It looks like the X-Universe is set for a big reboot under the watchful eye of Kevin Feige and Marvel Studios.
Alexandra Shipp, who plays Storm in the X-Men movies, has slammed the makers of the superhero franchise for giving her 'barely anything to say'.
With all due respect to her debut movie — 2009’s Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel — Alexandra Shipp’s second squeakquel sequel is a bigger deal.
Fox super-producer and ‘X-Men’ universe overseer Simon Kinberg has been discussing how the filmmaking team go about selecting which mutants to involve. In a few months 'X-Men: Apocalypse’ will give fans the most epic 'X-Men’ movie yet, and also one of its biggest cast of super-powered mutants. The new movie stars James McAvoy as Professor X and Michael Fassbender as Magneto, but also gives us younger versions of numerous famed mutants, including Jean Grey (Sophie Turner), Cyclops (Tye Sheridan), Storm (Alexandra Shipp) and Nightcrawler (Kodi Smit-McPhee).
Alexandra Shipp is acting up a storm in the X-Men role formerly played by Halle Berry. On Tuesday, director Bryan Singer posted a very cool Instagram shot of Shipp on the set of X-Men: Apocalypse, playing the younger ‘80s version of weather-wielding mutant Storm. The photo shows the actress on a fake rock against a green screen — but thanks to the magic of SIMULCAM technology (invented for Avatar), the monitor shows Shipp staring at a CG-created Egyptian landscape.
